This is my 1st season and we have 3 boards to maintain. So I watched Snowolf and many others teaching how to wax.
I bought an iron from Goodwill $7, small wax all temp $7, file $15, diamond stone $20, base cleaner $5 and I'm still ahead of the game.
When I'm doing my boards I either keep one hand on the face of the board to make sure it isn't getting hot or I check it frequently.
Start the iron on a lower setting if it isn't a waxing iron. You can always increase the heat. Starting to hot could burn the base if you aren't careful and keep the iron moving.
Like anything the 1st time can be intimidating, I am no way a pro but good enough for us, and our local ice hills.
